Women and Development

Narendra Prasad (Author)
Synopsis Women studies has now emerged as a full fledged academic discipline which calls for a thorough investigation into the subject. In India the term "Women's Studies" began to be used more frequently after the International Women's Year, i.e. 1975. Women constitute about one-half of the global population, but they are placed at various disadvantageous positions due to gender differences and bias. Women in Indian society have been victims of humiliation, torture, exploitation and discrimination inspite of legislative measures, spread of education and economic independence. Women are still relegated to second class status that makes them more vulnerable to abuse and less able to protect themselves from discrimination. Among the massive problems that confront Indian women are unemployment, poverty, inequality, health hazards, discrimination and so on.  The book consists of twenty two chapters covered range over a wide field of socio-economic and political issues of Indian women. All these issues of Indian women are discussed is such an elegant style that the readers can have an opportunity to study the subject all by themselves and at their own pace while deriving benefit of a vast range of real situations of women. This book would be of immense help not only to researchers and students but also to the general readers interested in the study of status of the Indian women.
